"The stage is a great place to be... it's also a great place to hide..."
About the host of "Radio Rehab"
My name is Bryan. I was raised in a Christian home, the first son of a Pentecostal preacher. My life was similar to that of a “Military brat”. As my dad was an evangelist and we never stayed in the same town for more than 2 or 3 years. I never had long-term relationships over my lifetime.Even in choosing a career it would involve constant moving around without much attachment to any person or relationship.I found myself medicating my own loneliness.
My attempts to comfort myself in the emptiness would eventually make my life unmanageable and relationships impossible. I was married to my addictions. I did not have friends. I had merely acquaintances. And they were based on what they could do for me. I saw people as paper plates. Not worth investing in as they would be gone too soon.I tell people I was given all the answers before I had the questions. So my life has not been the story of a miraculous transformation thru my faith in God. But rather a working out my salvation as I separated fact from fiction.
My faith has been a choice pure and simple and without a lot of emotionalism attached. Two verses from the Bible stand out to me; In Hebrews it says “if anyone comes to God they must first believe that he exists and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him”. My other favorite scripture is psalm 119.71 “The sufferings you sent were good for me, they caused me to consider your principles”.I write songs and sing to others about my pursuit of faith.
Not as one who has arrived but as a confidante, facing the same challenges of this temporary life. I choose to believe in the promises of Jesus in the Bible that speak of a bigger picture and a greater hope.
